The sharlyne melon can be easily identified by the ‘netted’ green rind, that according to some sources ripens to orange, but this particular sharlyne melon was very ripe.
The difference may be when they are picked and shipped to market. So, we suggest that when the melon softens to light squeezing, and becomes aromatic, it is most likely ripe. The flesh is nearly white, and is very soft and sweet and almost melts in your mouth. We could not find any specific nutritional information for the sharlyne melon.
